Nuts about Nuts? Try Candied Nuts !!

Candied/Glazed Nuts

A few years ago I went through a “love for almonds” phase… then I tasted glazed almonds… and let’s just say I thought they were delicious. Ok I admit that I may have overdone it but in moderation nuts are extremely healthy for you as well as tasty.

Candied nuts are great as a sweet and crunchy snack or even on top of a salad. They are so easy to make at home and they taste amazing.

I found this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks which is by far one of my best purchases:  Kosher By Design: Short on Time By Susie Fishbein.

Here is a link to this book so you won’t get confused because she has several different ones:


  • 8oz of mixed nuts- almonds, pecans, cashews, walnuts (use whichever you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1.5 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water and honey and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Put the nuts in a large bowl and spill Sugar-Water mixture on it. Mix to evenly coat all the nuts.
  5. With a slotted spoon transfer the nuts onto the cookie sheet in a single layer without putting any on top of each other.
  6. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
  7. Remove from cookie sheet onto another tray lined with parchment paper and let the nuts cool.
  8. Serve once they cooled and store in an airtight container.
